Mrs. Barclay's Haunted Wardrobe


The London Morning Post on August 19, 1937 published a personal ad that read:

"FOR SALE--Haunted wardrobe.--Advertiser will be glad to deliver same to anybody interested, complete with ghost, which would also no doubt feel more at home if welcomed.--Write Mrs. B. Barclay, Carterton Manor, Oxon."

After receiving hundreds of telegrams, letters, and telephone calls from eager buyers who wished to acquire their own ghost, Mrs. Barclay shared the story behind her ad with local reporters:

It seems that three years earlier, she visited a sale of various items at a home in Berkshire. She noticed a 7' high Victorian wardrobe. Although there was nothing remarkable about the piece, it appealed to Mrs. Barclay, and she paid £10 for it. She placed it in the guest room of her house, and life went on its usual uneventful course.

A little over two years later, she and her servants began to hear odd knocking sounds throughout the house. They were unable to find the source. Several of her houseguests tentatively commented that there was something...well, odd about the wardrobe. Throughout the night, its doors would loudly open and shut. After her guests had left, Mrs. Barclay monitored the wardrobe and found that, sure enough, those doors had a mind of their own. When she tied string around the doors, they would break their bonds and continue unabated. She thought there must be some sort of hidden mechanism causing the strange activity. However, when she tried to examine the wardrobe, one of the doors flew off, smashing a mirror. After that, she decided the thing was best left alone.

Although Mrs. Barclay was leaving the wardrobe in peace, it wasn't returning the favor. The banging noises intensified in volume and frequency. Then, she began seeing the figure of an elderly man in old-fashioned clothing and a deerstalker hat emerging from the wardrobe and walking out of the house. Her secretary and her brother saw him too.

This uninvited visitor was really beginning to get on Mrs. Barclay's nerves. As she later complained, "I am not psychic, nor am I nervous, but this wretched ghost will make such a noise. He clatters across the landing, and shuffles down the stairs, and the noise is often exasperatingly loud."

Her friends, not wishing to share a guest bedroom with a noisy ghost, began to refuse her invitations. After the spirit kicked her butler in the shins, he gave his notice and left. Her surviving household staff muttered about quitting en masse. Mrs. Barclay herself had to resort to sleeping outdoors, just to get a little quiet.

After her cook walked out on her, Mrs. Barclay--rather late in the day, one might think--realized that this damned--in every sense of the word--wardrobe just had to go. Hence the soon-to-be famous "Morning Post" ad.

After her notice appeared, Mrs. Barclay soon realized that ghosts are not the only noisy pests. She was continually harassed by ghost-hunters, self-described psychics, aggressive looky-loos, and cranks of every variety. Visitors came from as far away as America. Morons kept themselves entertained by dressing in white sheets and prancing around her grounds. She received offers for the wardrobe from a college of astrology. From a quartet of spinsters who said they wanted the ghost to guard their house during the night. (A watchghost?) "Can you guarantee ghosts?" one message said. Another asked if the spook would be happy in a "small modern house."

Mrs. Barclay was showered with unsolicited advice from self-appointed Ghost Experts. One opined, "I should say it's doubtful if the ghost will go with the wardrobe. He shows himself to you as you are sympathetic, but he may not do so to others...Leave the door open at night so that he can come in and out, and put a nice comfortable chair beside it for him, as he clings so to the wardrobe...Never mind the cook, cooks are plentiful, but you can never get another wardrobe like this."

By now, Mrs. Barclay was desperate to just put the whole mess behind her. She sold the wardrobe--and, she sincerely hoped, the ghost as well--to a Mr. Rundle for £50. He owned an inn in nearby Clanfield, and no doubt shrewdly assumed the famed wardrobe would attract visitors. "My inn is being rebuilt," he told a reporter. "At the moment there is no room large enough for the haunted wardrobe, but I am having my own bedroom enlarged, and then I shall have it put in there. Anyone who wants to sleep in that room will be at liberty to do so. But personally, I do not believe in ghosts."

Rundle temporarily lodged his new acquisition in the rather undignified setting of an outhouse. Unfortunately, by buying the wardrobe, he also acquired the same crowd of pranksters who had so bedeviled Mrs. Barclay. Boys and young men came from miles around to hoot, catcall, throw brickbats at the outhouse, and generally raise hell.

Although Rundle maintained his skepticism about the supernatural, even he soon had to admit that this was one peculiar wardrobe. On the first night it was on his property, the doors of the wardrobe began shaking violently, from no discernible cause. His wife noticed that it sometimes emitted curious bangings and a "noise like an aeroplane."

As many of the letters sent to Mrs. Barclay had theorized that the ghost was searching for something hidden in the wardrobe, Mr. Rundle took it apart. He found nothing unusual.

Oddly enough, disassembling the wardrobe appears to have broken its curious spell. After it was put back together, the wardrobe became just another dull piece of Victorian furniture. The strange noises and shakings ceased, and the old man in the deerstalker hat was never seen by anyone ever again.

Unknown 'Hairy Faced' Man

Silvia in San Jose California called in to tell of a strange sighting she had back in 2005:

“Up in Oregon, my girlfriend and I were riding in a car. She was driving and all of a sudden a creature appeared in the bush. He looked like a cross between a large... I can't describe it... like a dark skinned man with black hair on his face. The creature was behind a bush, so we only saw the face and the upper torso. He looked human. And so we were so scared that my girlfriend almost flipped the car. We went around a drove back down the road where we came from. This happened like 10 years ago.”

Witchcraft threatens Malawi albinos with extinction

At least 65 cases of violence against albinos recorded there since late 2014.

UN expert Ikponwosa Ero said the persecution represents 'an emergency.'

One boy, Alfred, 17, was recently found in a pool of blood after an attack.

In nearby Tanzania, full set of albino body parts sells for more than £50,000.

Albinos in Malawi face 'systematic extinction' if they continue to be murdered so their limbs can be used in witchcraft, a UN expert has said.

At least 65 cases of violence against people with albinism, including killings and dismemberment, have been recorded by police in the country since late 2014.

There are an estimated 10,000 albinos in Malawi, out of a population of 16.5m. In nearby Tanzania, a full set of albino body parts can sell for more than £50,000. Read more at Witchcraft threatens Malawi albinos with extinction

Her Terrifying Extraterrestrial Experience

An English woman who claimed she was once abducted by aliens recalled the terrifying extraterrestrial experience that took place more than 20 years ago. Her story of alien encounter will be detailed in a new book of renowned UFO expert and author Roy Dutton.

The Dawn She Was Abducted By Aliens

Valerie Walters told Torquay Herald Express that it was around 1:45 a.m. on July 16, 1981, when she was abducted by aliens. She was 26 years old at that time and was driving home with her two friends, Rosemary and Vivienn. The three ladies came from a night-out in Sheffield, United Kingdom.

Walters recalled that she and her friends started to get terrified after noticing a bizarre light appearing from the sky. Moments later, they saw a huge craft hovering directly above their car.

The English woman said that she cannot exactly recall what happened next after spotting the strange object. She remembered hearing a beeping noise that made her feel sleepy.

How She Was Abducted By Aliens

Walters relayed that she noticed that her friends were gone, therefore, she went out of the car to look for them. The car suddenly disappeared and then, she heard an odd voice telling her not to be afraid.

After hearing the voice, Walters said that everything went red in her head as she felt like she was being vacuumed. The next thing she knew, she was already in front of some bizarre beings.

"I was in a white wedge-shaped room with two humanoid beings, a male and a female both with shoulder length dark hair and hypnotic blue eyes," Walters shared.

Walters disclosed that she and her friends reported the terrifying extraterrestrial experience to the police, however, their case was not addressed seriously. She also said that her friends could not completely recall what really happened.

More People Abducted by Aliens

Walters' story of being abducted by aliens is not the first case. According to the Inquisitr, the "UFO Case Book" has details of few people claiming that they were abducted by aliens in 1950s.

In 2005, a woman named Donna Lee claimed that she lost her baby after she and her husband were repeatedly abducted by aliens. In the same year, a man from Florida, also claimed that he was abducted by aliens for few hours after spotting a UFO in his backyard. - Abducted By Aliens?

Elon Musk’s SpaceX to Send Ship to Mars by 2018

Via Twitter on April 27, SpaceX has announced its plans to send its Dragon spacecraft to Mars as soon as 2018.

The spacecraft mentioned in the tweet, the Dragon, is a “free-flying” craft designed to deliver both cargo and people to orbiting destinations. Dragon was the first commercial spacecraft to deliver cargo to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2012.

It continues to fly cargo to and from the ISS.

On his own Twitter page, Elon Musk—SpaceX’s billionaire founder—made the impressive claim that the Dragon 2 is designed “to land anywhere in the solar system” and that its Mars mission will be its first test flight.

While a version capable of carrying crew is in the works, there is no mention on the Dragon’s page of the Red Dragon mission or the Dragon 2.

Old Buff's Early Funeral


Here's a rather odd article published in the Muskogee Times Democrat on September 9, 1910:

Springfield, Ohio, Sept. 9--The funeral of Francis Marion Buffenbarger was attended by 500 people who went to the Grape Grove cemetery led by the "corpse" (on foot,) listened to a funeral oration delivered by the "corpse" in person, and feasted on pies and such that the aforesaid "corpse" passed around with his own hands. But they were not clammy either. Gnarled and horny perhaps, but not clammy.

Francis Marion Buffenbarger, retired farmer, had been looking forward to his funeral for years. Finally, that there might be no hitch or untoward incident to mar the event he concluded to hold it under his own immediate supervision before it was too late for him to manage properly.

So he sent out invitations to hundreds of friends and relatives, and on the appointed day led the funeral cortege to the cemetery, where he dug his own grave and erected his own tombstone all ready for the last sad rites.

"Old Buff" himself made the speech of the day, advising everybody to be good and ever ready for the summons, and counseling especially against running the risk of sudden death. "Beware of automobiles and every other invention of the devil," he warned his auditors.

Then the "rites" being over, "Old Buff" passed out a wagon-load of pies and other edibles, gave all the children candy, each of the little girls a handkerchief and each of the men a cigar. Finally he invited everybody to come to his real funeral, warning them, however, that all the doings but the actual burial were already over, and that it would be a simple affair "with no undertaker around to make folks feel bad."

It seems that the Buffenbargers have ever taken delight in preparation for ringing down the curtain of life. "Old Buff" says that his grandfather kept his coffin in the house for years before he died, and had his grave clothes handy all the time.

"Old Buff" himself had a coffin ordered from a South Charleston undertaker, but it will remain in the undertaker's warerooms till it is needed.

Several years ago Mrs. Buffenbarger left "Old Buff" and ran away with the hired man. That broke the old man's heart. He left his farm near South Charleston and came to live with friends near Grape Grove. The folks take good care of him and when the time comes for the final episode of the installment obsequies the funeral procession will not be one rig the less because all the speech-making and funeral baked meats and such are already consumed.

In a strange twist to this story, 'Old Buff' had previously warned 'beware of automobiles and every other invention of the devil.' Well, it seems that fate caught up with him...he was killed in a streetcar accident. And he was buried in his self-prepared grave after he finally passed away 2 years later. Lon

Daily 2 Cents: Insectoid Encounter in Cyprus -- Disembodied Legs -- 'Space-Train' Traveling on Light Ray


Insectoid Encounter in Cyprus

Albert Rosales forwarded this new MUFON report:

This incident occurred on Wednesday 20th April 2016 at apporximately 8:30PM in Zygi, Cyprus. My two friends and I had just finished our meal and were out in the garden talking and drinking (not alcohol). One of my friends had gone into the kitchen to refill their glass, whilst me and my other friend remained outside. After a moment of silence, my friend pointed out an unusually bright 'star' moving across the sky, assuming it may have been a comet or something. After a brief moment, I looked up at it again to realize that it was stationary; around 75-100ft above the treeline. I sat there, staring at this 'thing', just in complete shock. Every 15 seconds or so it would lower its altitude, until it was only a couple of feet from the tree tops. The weirdest part about this is that absolutely no noise had been emitted thus far. I tried to get out of my chair to hurry inside, but I felt an overwhelming feeling of paralysis, as did my friend. I turned to her and asked her what was going on, but she looked frozen in fear.

After what felt like hours, something appeared from around the trees underneath the triangular craft. It was a humanoid figure, with a head similar to that of an ant, and skin like a crocodile. It had extremely small eyes in proportion to its head, and long, thin appendages. It walked right up to the fence, before sharply turning and sprinting into the darkness of the trees. After a brief moment of complete fear, dread and anxiousness, the craft moved in a linear path towards the West, before becoming no longer visible. During this time, my friend who had gone to refill her glass watched the entire event through the window. She recalls, although neither me or my other friend do, that the creature had some sort of device in its 'hand', and that it held it up briefly before its disappearance.

I do not know why it came to us, or to where we were, but I can tell you it is the first time I've ever witnessed this or heard of this happening in Cyprus.

Disembodied Legs

A reader named Alan stated there's an eyewitness account to something which resembles the trail cam image you reported just recently:

I'm walking to the yard, not really paying attention to what was ahead of me. I just remember that I was looking down at the ground. I heard a strange sound in-front of me. Hard to explain, it was loud, like a crunch of leaves or branches, only much louder, like if someone with heavy boots (would have had to be steel toed I assume) made one loud stomp. But it was only one crunching noise. I looked up, and it didn't really register at first what I was seeing, but what I saw immediately sent a feeling over me that I had until that point in my life, never felt before. I saw just legs. Dark legs, like shadows, one set. But definitely legs. It wasn't exactly solid. It was kind of.. gassy? I guess is the best way to describe it.

There was absolutely no torso connected to these legs. Where there should have been an upper body, was nothing. At first I felt like I couldn't, or shouldn't make any movements. Like something was telling me to stay still. There was no noises at this point, just complete quiet like everything had gone still.

'Space-Train' Traveling on Light Ray

Beaumont, CA - 4/11/2016: I was sleeping in the RV vehicle I had rented, getting ready to leave for Marfa, Tx, in the morning. I got-up to walk my Dog in the early hours, and while looking at the night sky, which had become clear, after a prior rain, I saw what appeared to be a star in the Southern skies. It slowly grew brighter, then emitted long, horizontal Light Rays, to the East and West, much like a flashlight, only a lot stronger, while the center light grew even brighter. Then, the weirdest thing happened; something entered the light-ray to the East, and moved in front of the center, all the while, the light in the center was obscured like a passing Train does, when moving in front of a light. The only thing that came to mind is; I was watching a 'Space-Train', connected craft transitioning through the Light Ray. I looked to see what my Dog was doing, but when I looked back, the light rays were gone, then the 'star', blinked out. when I got back-in the vehicle, I looked at the time, it was 1:23 AM, and the whole event had lasted only a couple of minutes. I had an incredibly hard time trying to verbalize this sighting. - MUFON CMS

Uwharrie National Forest Bigfoot

The North Carolina forest - quiet, heavily wooded and plenty of shade.

This is Big Foot Country.

"I've never seen him. A lot of people think they have or they think he's here or has been here."

But before hitting the woods, there's one spot Sasquatch seekers stop at first, in droves.

"Hundreds, thousands. From all states and all over the world I imagine. I don't know. England has sent several people over here, they call it a Uwharrie Safari."

Marion Owen opened the Eldorado Outpost with her husband, a former forester at Uwharrie National Forest, twenty years ago. And they learned very quickly to stock up on Big Foot bait.

"Those candy bars, they think he likes peanut butter. I'm not sure what he eats cause I don't know him!"

Owen says she's heard countless Big Foot stories over the years...

"Somebody came in one morning and wanted to buy some more buns or rolls, big foot had stole their bread. But I think big foot would have got their meat out of the cooler, that was my idea."

Even if she's never seen Big Foot, Owen still believes in the legend.

"Go look for him if you want to. If you see him take a picture, just don't kill him. I think it would probably bother our business here a little bit." - Searching For Bigfoot in Uwharrie National Forest

Dead Cow, Missing Time and a Weird Guy


Terry in Minneapolis, Minnesota called in to Darkness Radio to tell of a bizarre experience he had while returning from the Missouri River:

“So it was like, I guess '82 or '83 or '84. I don't know what year it was. I worked for a construction company and they sent me over to the Missouri River because they sunk a crane in the river. So they sent me with this big block and tackle in the back of the truck. No big deal...but it was kinda weird when I got there. It was kind of like an Indian Reservation. Nobody was there. It's hard for me to explain but it was like desolate. Anyway, people finally showed up and they unloaded the thing and on my way home, I seen this dead cow.

Now I've told this story before. This cow was laying on its back, feet sticking straight up. I thought that was pretty weird because I've never seen anything like that. So I'm driving down the road and this guy comes driving by me in this old truck and he just gave me this look. This was the look of death. And I thought, 'Wow, that was pretty weird.' Next thing I know, he drove past me with the cow in his truck. We were out in the middle of nowhere. And I'm like, 'how can that be?' I'm still driving down the road. And, I don't know what to tell you but that this guy passed me with that damn cow in the back of his truck.

That's all I can tell you. At the end, my time-card showed 14 hours missing. I just figured... the reason was, I had to time-out when I got there and when I timed out, it was 14 hours. I don't know where the 14 hours went. I don't know where this guy came from with the cow. He put it in his truck and he drove past me with this same weird look on his face. I mean he looked at me weird.”

Mysterious Photos

In the 1987 comedy film, '3 Men and a Baby.' What's with that creepy little kid peering through the curtains? Let's just say he wasn't exactly part of the script......

It was a regular day in the countryside for Jim Templeton and his wife and daughter as they lunched on Burgh Marsh, and many lovely photographs were taken. So days later, Jim decided to get the photos developed. But that's when the story starts getting freaky.

Mystified and stunned by the spaceman-like spectre in the background, he asked Kodak for answers. But even to this day, Kodak swear that the photo showed no sign of tampering while Jim and his wife were always adamant that no one else was present when the photo was captured.

Care homes are sad places and are perhaps only surpassed by hospitals and hospices in regards to their depressing realities. After all, many have loved and lost, while others look back at how it used to be. But according to one old lady, her daily dose of nostalgia came in the form of her husband's ghost. Even her family have sworn that no man was present when the photo was captured.

In this stunning photo, a woman can be seen standing on a piece of debris waving frantically for help after the tragic events of 9/11. Evidently, she miraculously survived the initial attack, but what happened after remains shrouded in mystery.

Though it may look like the beginnings of a Hollywood horror, this photo was instead taken in the comfort of the Cooper's family dining room. But ominously spotted in the background was a mysterious figure dangling from the ceiling.

“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don't know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.”
